Profile

As pioneers in exploiting the inland waterways in Goa, the Shipbuilding Division of Chowgule & Company Private Limited created waves in utilization of the rivers for the development of the economy. From as early as 1951, as builders, operators and repairers of large river fleets and with the experience and expertise to build a gamut of maritime vessels, ranging from ore-carrying barges, grab and suction dredgers and deep-sea fishing trawlers to tugs, pontoons, launches, hopper barges and coastal vessels, the yard has pioneered construction of all types of ocean going vessels up to 7000 DWT.

We have constructed over 165 vessels for clients in India and abroad

Our facilities include
  • Two Shipyards - one at Loutulim and the other at Rassaim, located at a distance of 7 k.m. from each other
  • Plate preparation and Pipe bending Plant at Gadegally
  • Covered shed for hull block fabrication
  • Covered shed for manufacturing of cargo hatch covers
  • Three Goliath Cranes (two at Loutulim Shipyard & one at Rassaim shipyard) each of 60 Tons capacity
  • Two tower cranes, one each at the two shipyards.
  • Training of Yard officers for modern shipbuilding methodology.

An investment of approximately INR 110 Crores (INR 1100 million) was made for creating the above mentioned facilities. This is apart from the cost of land and other basic infrastructure that already existed.

Between the two shipyards we can deliver 9 ocean going multi purpose general cargo vessels per year of around 5000 DWT each.

For the past several years, we have been participating in various trade shows such as INMEX (Mumbai, India), SMM (Hamburg), Gulf Maritime Expo (Sharjah), Posidonia 2010 (Greece), Korea Marinetech (South Korea), Sea Japan (Japan).

We are ISO 9001:2008 Quality System compliant.
